It’s Christmas time once again
And the New Years ready to begin
Santa Clause and all that stuff
It seems you kids can’t get enough

What I would like most to do
Is spend my Christmas day with you
But since we are so far away
I guess its here that I must stay

So as you read this Christmas poem
Know that I am safe at home
If you feel bad that I’m alone
Don’t hesitate to pick up the phone
